This month, we caught up with Mary Collet, who has been taking orders from Store to Door Clients since 2015! We are excited to recognize Mary for her longtime commitment to serving our homebound clients, and for giving more than 318 hours of her time since signing up as an order taker!
Q: You’ve been a Store to Door Volunteer since 2015. How did you first get involved with Store to Door?
A: I met Store to Door shoppers at my local Fred Meyer and found out how to apply for a spot. Calling was perfect for me as it didn’t involve driving.
Q: What’s a fun fact about you, you’d like to share?
A: I was fortunate to work at the Moffett Field NASA facility during the first trips to the moon. Our job was to determine the safest landing site with the least volcanic dust. (Really dates me) Also, my husband and I spent 10 years as dragon boat paddlers w the senior team Portland Golden Dragons. We traveled to San Francisco, Boston, Denver, Victoria and sometimes we even won!
Q: What would you tell someone who is thinking of volunteering with Store to Door?
A: If you are thinking of making calls for Store to Door, you are in for a rewarding experience. Our clients tend to be most interesting and also inspirational.
